If you think gin is only good for mixing with tonic, think again. The great thing about gin is its versatility. Sure, it can be added to cocktails to make them light and refreshing, but there's also a wonderful, dark side of gin. Milk Street Editorial Director and resident bartender J.M. Hirsch will show you the way. Watch him mix together the Bijou, a drink similar to an Old-Fashioned, made up of gin, vermouth, green chartreuse, bitters, and a little bit of kosher salt. Then try it yourself. Stir. Strain. Done. Cheers!
